My First Poinsettia Christmas Stocking Kits Are Now Listed ..

Hello my dear friends,

I am so excited today!

 I just wanted to let you know that the first kits for my Poinsettia Christmas Stocking ...


... are now listed in my Etsy shop.

 With this kit you will be able to make my ...


... Poinsettia Christmas Stocking.


At the moment I have three different colors available which are peach, cream and pink.

This is how you will receive your kit in the mail ... all wrapped up neatly in brown paper and tied up with a lovely seam binding bow.


And when you open your little parcel you will find this ...
(this is the cream colored kit)


... all the bits and pieces that are needed to make my poinsettia Christmas stocking which is approx 18 inches long and 5.5 inches wide at the opening.

I just couldn't stop myself from making a few little neat things to make this kit a tiny bit neater.


A little bag made from a dryer sheet, stamped with a silver snowflake that holds ...


... the pearls.

I also made little tags ...


... for the thread.

And last but not least ...


I made little sweet piece!

It is a needle book in which ...


... you will find the needles and pins tucked away in it.

The kit contains the following ...

~ 3 pieces of a felted vintage woolen blanket 
~ 6 yards of Winter White seam binding
~  4 white pearls
~ 2 skeins of embroidery floss 
~  10 yards of sewing thread 
~ 4 yards of stronger white sewing thread
~ 1 embroidery needle
~ 2 sewing needles
~ Some pins
~ 1 bamboo crochet hook

The tutorial itself will be e-mailed to you. 

You won't need a lot once you have the kit.
 All you will have to do is print the pattern off and gather a few things ... a quilter's marker, scissors, a glue stick, a piece of cardboard for the pattern, and your time! That is really it! You won't have to run around trying to find a vintage blanket and felt it, no looking for seam binding, embroidery thread and any other bits and pieces that are needed. You will have it all together in this kit.

And now the best thing ... shipping within Canada and to the USA is FREE!

I have worked very hard to put this kit and tutorial together and I hope I haven't forgotten anything. One last little thing to keep in mind is that these kits are made from vintage woolen blankets that have been shrunk and each blanket shrinks and felts differently, some more dense and some not so much.

If any of you Lovelies are interested, why not pop over to my Etsy shop and take a look.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me here today at Todolwen ~ it is always so nice when you do.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

  1. I recommend Todolwen pieces as they are works of art. I've bought two pincushions and each of them are a inspiration in itself. Very high quality items are used and so well done. I'm tempted to even purchase one of these kits too. <3
